Details of strike days
For best small picket line photos/visuals aim for between 9am and 10.45am. There will be picket lines at entrances all round the campus.
For best general photos/visuals: end-of-picket rallies 1130am on Parkinson Building steps (by the main university entrance).
Local press contact: email@example.com
We usually can’t provide urgent comment because branch officers are working delivering education and usually can’t take calls, but if more urgent than an email please call the branch administrator on 0113 343 5904, who may be able to arrange a fairly-urgent comment.
On strike days please contact the national press office or, if on location, there will be a branch officer coordinating picket activity by the university main entrance, usually by a pink gazebo.
Contacts for UCU national press office
Media student interview requests: for practice interview requests about the strikes/dispute please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will email the request around UCU reps and see if anyone can make time to do it. It is a really busy time for UCU reps, who are organising a strike on top of their massive day-job workload, so while we will do practice interviews if we can, we often are not able to arrange this.
